Nigerian travelers to Dubai were stopped and their passports were taken at the airport.
A video from the airport was posted by one of the affected travelers.
It depicts Nigerians demanding explanations after having their passports arbitrarily taken away.
Others are spotted waiting to hear their destiny while seated in a vacant space.
One of those being held is overheard requesting an Arab man to hand over her passport so she can leave the Arab nation and return to Nigeria.
The woman who posted the video said that after a “tedious process,” her sister picked her up from immigration, but other Nigerians who had no family in the country were not allowed to go.
